Fate of Atlantis featured three different paths to choose for completion of the central part of the game. At this point, during a dialogue sequence, the player can choose between: The Wits Path (Indy has to use his brains to solve problems), the Fists Path (lighter puzzles, lots of fist fights and action movie-like solutions to problems), and the Team Path (features Sophia Hapgood as a reluctant sidekick and part of many puzzles). Each path includes some new objects and locations, different characters and dialogue lines, and alternate ways to progress through the adventure to reach Atlantis. The player who finished all of the puzzles in all three paths and all of the alternative solutions received the 1000 full IQ (Indy Quotient) score.

Indy goes to New York City and meets up uneasily with Sophia while she is giving a speech. The two find that Klaus had already been there, having ransacked her room. All her artifacts are stolen except a necklace, which she always wears. Sophia explains the Nazis are after the power of Atlantis because of Orichalcum, a legendary metal more powerful than Uranium.

Indy and Sophia return to Iceland where Doctor Bjorn Heimdall directs them to two other scholars. In Tikal, Guatemala they meet Doctor Charles Sternhart who translated Plato's 'Hermocrates' in English. Inside the temple Sternhart takes care of Indy's discovery of a tomb and a stone disk, which Sternhart recognises as a 'Worldstone'. He grabs it and flees by a secret passage. Philip Costa from Azores, on the other hand, tells the couple, after a bit of persuasion via an eel figurine artifact found back from Iceland, that a copy of the Hermocrates should be in one of the book collections at Barnett College.

The documents speaks that in order to gain access to Atlantis, three stone disks, the Sunstone, the Moonstone, and the Worldstone, are needed. According to Sophia one of two old associates, had a Sunstone, either: Alain Trottier from Monte Carlo or Omar Al Jabbar from Algiers. Monte Carlo is a very wealthy section of the city-state of Monaco known for its casino, gambling, beaches, glamour, and sightings of famous people. ... “Alger” redirects here. ...


It is at this point that the player has to choose between either the Team Path, in which Indy continues on with Sophia and the game consists mostly of dialogue and diplomacy puzzles, the Fists Path, in which Indy goes alone and the game involves more fighting than puzzles, or the Wits Path, in which Indy goes it alone and there are more puzzles than fighting.


The Wits Path

Indy goes to Monte Carlo and meets Trottier, acquiring his business card. He then travels to Algiers where he shows Trottier's business card to Omar Al-Jabbar's assistant, but Indy still cannot see Al-Jabbar. After giving the assistant a red fez, Indy is able to track the assistant to Al-Jabbar's house. Locking Al-Jabbar in his own closet, Indy "borrows" a map, several statues and a camel so he can venture to the dig site. After bribing patrols with the statues and asking nomads for accurate directions, Indy finds the dig site and an idol like the one from the opening sequence. He finds a note in a truck saying the Nazis are going after Trottier in Monte Carlo .

Indy arrives in Monte Carlo and tries to warn Trottier about the Nazis, but is too late and Trottier is kidnapped. Indy follows the Nazis' car and crashes into it, scaring them off and saving Trottier. Trottier explains he knows the entrace to the lost city is in Thera and that he threw the Sunstone out of the car to protect it. After searching the streets, Indy manages to find it.

Indy arrives in Thera and heads for the mountains. He finds a cave, and inside he uses the Sunstone to acquire a stone carving. Inside an entrenching tool Indy finds a note from Sophia saying that she's been kidnapped and taken on board a Nazi U-Boat. After trading the stone carving for a basket, picking up a net, and using an invoice to obtain a ballon, and hot air from the mountains, Indy creates a makeshift hot air balloon, and flies it onto the Nazis' U-Boat. Here he manages to steal the Nazis' Moonstone and create a fire in the foward torpedo room. Using the fire as a distraction, Indy fires himself out of an Aft torpedo tube and, once on shore, uses the Sun and Moon stones to open the Labyrinth.

The Fists Path

Indy travels to Monte Carlo and meets Trottier, obtaining his business card. He then travels to Algiers, and saves Omar Al-Jabbar from a Nazi soldier. With the map and the camel Indy gets from Omar, he reaches an Archeological dig, where he finds the Sunstone. Stealing a hot air balloon from a nazi guard, Indy flies to Crete. Monte Carlo is a very wealthy section of the city-state of Monaco known for its casino, gambling, beaches, glamour, and sightings of famous people. ...

In Crete, Indy follows a diagram and uncovers a Moonstone. He uses both the Sun and Moonstones to open a labyrinth. Inside, Indy finds a deceased Sternheart and takes his Worldstone. He uses his brute strength and his trusty whip to get past several traps and Nazi guards, and finds Sophia in a hole, from which he frees her. They find a map room which leads them out.

There, Indy and Sophia hire a boat and Indy dives down, looking for an entrance to Atlantis. However, the boat was a set up, and a Nazi U-Boat arrives, after which Kerner kidnaps Sohpia and leaves Indy to die underwater with only 3 minutes of air.

The Team Path

Indy and Sophia go to Monte Carlo and trick Trottier out of the Sunstone, before heading to Algiers, where they confront Omar Al-Jabbar, a shopkeeper. Omar reveals that there is a dig by the Germans going on somewhere in the desert. Indy steals a touring balloon but the balloon is shot down by one of the Nazis, guarding the dig. At the digsite they discover a mural that gives Indy directions for Crete, the Palace of Knossos as an Atlantean colony.

At the ruins of Knossos, using the hints from Hermocrates, Indy and Sophia dig out a hidden Moonstone. Working with both disks they open an entrance to the Labyrinth. There they find the body of Doctor Sternhart, who starved not being able to get out from a certain chamber. Indy takes from him the Worldstone.

Meanwhile, a Nazi submarine surfaces off the island, and the Nazis enter the labyrinth. They kidnap Sophia but Indy manages to get on the submarine and impersonate a crew member.

Picture of Platos description of Atlantis Atlantis (Greek: , Island of Atlas) is the name of a legendary island first mentioned in Platos dialogues Timaeus and Critias. ...


Atlantis

Sophia is again kidnapped when they arrive Atlantis. After a lot of exploring and puzzle solving to rescue her from a prison and enter Atlantis' second ring, it is revealed that Nur-Ab-Sal guided Sophia to Atlantis through the medallion, in order to reclaim his old kingdom. His ghost possesses Sophia completely. Indy takes the opportunity to snatch the necklace and hurl it into a pool of lava in Nur-Ab-Sal's throne room.


Indy and Sophia continue on to the heart of the city, a massive chamber full of lava with passageways leading up and down. The two manage to navigate the chamber to the city's centre. In the Colossus - a huge machine in the centre of the capital, which gave the Atlanteans god-like powers, they are ambushed by Ubermann and Kerner. Kerner decides he is the most worthy one around to transform into a god. Based on Plato's tenfold error, Ubermann feeds the machine with 1 bead instead of 10, which turns Kerner into a grotesque dwarf. He jumps into the lava and is dead. The Nazis then force Indy to stand in the machine as an experiment. // A colossus is a large statue. ...


Jones manages to convince Ubermann to be overpowered by anger and his own lust for power to let him down and him be transformed by the machine instead. He feeds the machine 100 beads and the machine turns him into a being of pure energy, who then explodes, activating the volcano that has been asleep for millennia. As the city is crumbling, Indy and Sophia make their way to the submarine and take it to the surface. The city collapses deeper under the water, while Indy and Sophia watch the sun set on the smoke. And then they kiss. For other uses, see Volcano (disambiguation). ...


If Jones does not convince Ubermann to use the device, Jones himself undergoes the transformation and explodes; trapping the Nazis (and Sophia as a result) in the ruins. The Nazi party used a right-facing swastika as their symbol and the red and black colors were said to represent Blut und Boden (blood and soil). ...


Alternate Ending

If Indy left the ghost of Nur-Ab-Sal in Sophia, then instead of Ubermann experiencing the final transformation, Sophia/Nur-Ab-Sal does. Ubermann is knocked into the lava pit by the expoloding energy of Sophia. Indy escapes on his own and is left thinking why Sophia didn't listen to him.

Production

  • The cover art for the game was designed by William L. Eaken, the Lead Artist on the project, trying to emulate the style of Drew Struzan, who painted the artwork for all three Indiana Jones movie posters.
  • The game was re-released on CD-ROM with a full voice-over soundtrack in 1993.
  • The adventure game was released simultaneously with Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis: The Action Game loosely following the same storyline and belonging to the arcade-adventure genre.
  • A four-issue comic book mini-series written by Lee Mars and based on the game's storyline was published before the game's release by Dark Horse Comics.
  • LucasArts had planned on developing this game for the Sega CD, but canceled the game after its Sega CD edition of The Secret of Monkey Island failed to be much of a commercial success.[1]

Trivia

  • The game is breaking the established LucasArts adventure game tradition of not allowing the player to die (though it was also possible to die at some points in their earliest adventure titles: Last Crusade, Maniac Mansion, and Zak McKracken). After the player's death, a short "what happened" summary and a score appear. To the player's advantage, most of the time the game conveniently alerts the player of impending danger so that he or she can play more cautiously.
  • Game resource editing programs like ScummRev have revealed that there is an unused room in the game code that didn't make it to the final version. This room is Sophia's bedroom, and lies next to her ransacked office. In the final version, all that takes place in Sophia's apartment is an extended dialogue in her office. In the bedroom, some objects can be identified with ScummRev; this indicates that the programmers intended some puzzle or additional action to be solved by the player, apart from the office dialogue. One of the usable objects is labeled as Chuck the Plant, which is an inside joke at LucasArts and a nod to several previous LucasArts games.
  • Hermocrates, an alleged book of Plato which would conclude Timaeus and Critias, supposedly discussed Atlantis much further than in the two others.
  • Atlantis in the game has, according to Plato's descriptions, a cyclical structure (three homocentric rings around a central 'capital') with the capital in the centre, in the old times locked away from the public districts from all but a few chosen. Many places resemble giant industrial factories, some of which can still be activated. The most mysterious thing, he encounters, are the disfigured horned human-like skeletons scattered around; the nearer the capital, the more of them.
